I no longer feel comfortable walking 5 minutes
I was walking to the train station in a residential area in the middle of the day. I had my headphones in and noticed a car slowing down to keep pace with me. The driver of the car began catcalling me, and I continued to ignore him. When he asked if I spoke English, I said ‘no,’ and he replied, ‘oh, yes you do.’ I went to cross a street and he turned into that street, effectively cornering me. I began to panic, and noticed a bus had pulled up at the bus stop just behind me. I backtracked and thank God, the driver waited for me! He asked if I was being followed and took down the driver’s licence plate. I no longer feel comfortable walking the five minute walk to the train station.
